Stacey Cohen, MD, University of Washington, Seatlle, WA, provides an overview of a retrospective analysis of a real-world cohort U.S-based multi-institutional study. Data from circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) testing of over 16,0000 patients with stage I-III patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) were analyzed. Complete clinical information was available for approximately 400 patients, which demonstrated that post-operative MRD-negative status was associated with significantly higher recurrence-free survival (RFS) compared to MRD-positive. These results show ctDNA can reliably predict cancer recurrence in patients with resected stages I-III colorectal cancer. This interview took place at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2022 Congress in Paris, France.
